You struggle and struggle and try and try and suddenly you realize that someone has turned up the dimmer switch. The light is brighter.

You feel better. You see more clearly. You don’t need that thing that was feeling so necessary. You don’t want it any more.

You’ve climbed higher on the mountain than you realize and there’s a beautiful view you hadn’t previously known was available.

You’re not stuck in that place any more. You want to giggle.

What got you there?

One footstep at a time, and, the love of God.

The fun thing is, there’s more to come than you realize. You can’t now imagine how bright and beautiful it’s going to be.
